Run for Their Lives 5K Run/Walk

Students for Life established this event in Spring 2007. The proceeds first went towards the following local crisis pregnancy centers: Our Lady's Inn, Birthright, and the Pregnancy Resource Center. They now go towards the Pregnant and Parenting Student Assistance, a fund the group is growing to assist pregnant and parenting SLU students. Members call donors, fundraise, lay out the 5K course, rent timing equipment, and order t-shirts. They also develop an online registration system and distribute awards after the always successful run and walk. So far, Students for Life has raised over $6,000 with this event.

Chaifetz Arena Concessions

Since the completion of SLU's on-campus Chaifetz Arena in 2008, Students for Life has worked many concerts, games, and other events. We have raised over a thousand dollars and are grateful for this wonderful source of fundraising!

Funnel Cake Stands

When there's a big outdoor event on campus, Students for Life provides funnel cakes and nachos when possible. A core group of members works throughout the evening beneath the Students for Life tent to answer the usually large demand. This fundraiser is quite successful, and it's a lot of fun!

Relay for Life

Students for Life assembled its first Relay for Life team in 2007 with nearly ten participants. Students for Life Relayers get their own tent, walk around the track throughout the night, and raise money for cancer research and the American Cancer Society.
